Stage 6 of our beautiful relay trip sets off a real trail fireworks display, fueled by komoot user Thilo Kraemer, who takes you on this 31-kilometer circuit that starts in Locarno and takes you to Cadenazzo.Even if a first glance at the altitude profile makes you shudder, the tour starts very relaxed. Because the rather nasty-looking climb right at the beginning is not your responsibility, but that of the gondola. This comfortably transports you and your bike to the Cardada before the chairlift takes you up to Locarno's local mountain, the 1,671 meter high Cimetta. Phew - around 1,300 vertical meters saved!Once at the top, you can first take a deep breath and inhale the fresh mountain air with the best view - then you sit on your bike and look forward to an enjoyable tour in freeride style: With a few exceptions, it's only downhill today. The main protagonist of the day is the Cardada Trail, which gives you flowing mountain biking pleasure, but requires your full attention because of its loose surface and sheer length. The trail leads you down to Val Resa and on to Contra, where you can treat yourself to a break and refreshment. You have now left the demanding part of this tour behind you.Past the Lago di Vogorno, a reservoir, you roll out more or less and at the end of the tour and the Ticino MTB relay you can once again enjoy the wonderful landscape of Ticino. Satisfied and exhausted, you finally arrive at the train station in Cadenazzo, from where you can start your journey home in a relaxed manner.
